The war is at its most intense. But that intensity, measured in casualties and destruction, does not suggest victory: the western front is a bloody stalemate. In part two, there is growing industrial unrest in Australia. Families like the McGinnesses are changed by the realities of loss and turn against war as a solution. Billy Hughes faces division at home. For so long a war of attrition, movement and manoeuvre suddenly returns to the battlefield in 1918. When it all ends, in November of 1918, the soldiers return home. Their sacrifice, and the experience of those who fought beside them, those who were touched by the war in so many ways, is what changed Australia forever.

An unknown chapter of Anne Frank's life has recently been uncovered. A volunteer was sorting through Holocaust manuscripts in the YIVO archives at the Institute for Jewish Research when she came upon letters written by Anne Frank's father. Otto Frank wrote dozens of letters to various contacts in the US Government desperately trying to save his family from the clutches of the Nazis, letters that were lost until now. Otto's letters and the US State Department's responses paint a picture of the world's failure to respond to the plight of Jewish refugees. In this film, Anne Franks' surviving family, Buddy Elias and Eva Schloss, relate the unknown story of the Frank family's frantic search for sanctuary. And in so doing, the film retells the Anne Frank story, a poignant reminder of the plight of a world-famous refugee who has no where to go.

From the rise of Ho Chi Minh in 1959 and the subsequent formation of the Vietcong to the deadly battle in La Drang valley in 1965 through to the quagmire of the Vietnam War in the late 1960s and its eventual conclusion in 1975, no detail is spared in this three-part, back to back special.

The months of the war in Europe were shocking and desperate. This film follows the British and the Americans as they cross the Rhine and the Russians as they push through Poland into Germany itself. It covers the horrors of the liberation of Belsen and Buchenwald, and the final terrible street fighting in Berlin.

Code-breaking revelations and newly released government papers on both sides of the Atlantic have added a very insightful new dimension to the understanding of this, the world's greatest ever conflict. With the very latest satellite-delivered terrain mapping and state-of-the-art graphics, this story can now be told with the very latest access to information which was not previously available.
